You’re expected to hold a degree
In this dog-eat-dog world
To be a functioning part of society

Tell me what does it really mean
When students display their dubiety
Perhaps, they aught to pursue a PhD

Education never mattered much to me
I just wanted the rewards and treats

That came with living the dream

It’s a girl…

Two years ago, last month
My heart was punctured & crushed
I still miss HER  so much

Yet I’m ready for another pup
I’ve waited long enough
My heart’s already filling up

Only she’s barely 3 weeks old
And needs more time to grow
Before I can bring her home

She sent this selfie for show
Said to tell y’all hello
And she can’t wait to run her chateau

 

My Shepherd

Watches over me
From her field of dreams
Now running wild and free

A year ago today
I watched my Tara slip away
It still feels like it was yesterday

She laid down to sleep
Leaving only memories to keep
That fill me with pride and peace

My Shepherd
Watches over me
From her field of dreams
Now running wild and free

Spring Foward Into Night

I’m not afraid of the dark
I get an early morning start
Sacrificing my fitful sleep
To beat the California heat
When all is still tucked in bed
Getting their snooze on instead
It’s calm and quiet till I walk by
With my shepherd at my side
Waking up every dog in sight
Activating the motion lights

Making the evenings a fine
Time for sipping on red wine
Longer days now filled with work
There’s no time for creative words
